How annoying  
It appears that I have developed an allergy to bananas. I could do without such unpleasant discoveries - it made for a long and mostly useless day. Having my face go numb was a bit disconcerting. Benedryl works like a charm, but it kicks my ass every time.

Who the heck is allergic to bananas anyway??

Allergic to bananas?
I don't know if I could handle being allergice to bananas...
They didn't call me "Zanna-banana" growing up for no reason!
I'm so sorry to hear of this recent developement.

I am.

Those, and avacados...both of which I find delicious.

You are really allergic to bananas??

I strongly suspect that was the problem over the last couple of weeks, as I felt bad a couple of other times and the only commonality was eating a banana. But I will conduct another test on my own and probably have some allergy testing done.

I *like* bananas.

...who would really miss smoothies in the summer...

It's actually a "food sensitivity," which means that while I don't break out in hives when I eat them, they give me a bad stomach ache.

I have managed to work around the smoothie thing - I love smoothies so when I am out and getting one i just ask them to hold the banana and I find them just about as delish.

You're the first person I know who is allergic to bananas.

Seriously, I can't imagine what that would be like..

if memory serves correctly, people that have potassium deficiencies are more prone to such allergies.

that's odd, and interesting. my husband has a deadly allergy to brazil nuts, and apparently, based on the brazil nut protein that tends to excite allergies, he ought also to be allergic to both bananas and vinyl. apparently, bananas,vinyl,brazil nuts and walnuts go together in some sort of allergen grouping.
